Our Mission/ Vision toward sustainability : Reduce / Re- Use /We-Grow
Reduce – reduce the amount of waste in landfill
Re-use – old or strips of unwanted fabric and thread them back and weave them into new fabric
We-grow – Within this modern day society there is always new methods in creating a more ecofriendly material. Resew House is always looking for new way to improve the way we fabric
We are trying as best as we can to minimise our waste as little as possible
How we make our vision come to life?
It all starts with a conservative production according to the most recent estimates in 2021 from Ellen Macarthur Foundation (click the link for more info) more than 20 million tonnes of fashion related waste are produced each year and will end up in our landfills. Resew House seeks to embrace a more eco- friendly supply chain. The three main factors to help us grow are:
1: Our Fabrics
Our active wear are made from recycled Nylon which has been tested though a system called global recycled standard. These farbics are made from strips of unwanted fabrics from a garment factory which would probably end up at the land fill. Our fabric company will then collect these fabrics and break them back down and yarn into our nylon fabric.
We source our deadstock fabric from our partners factory in China those are the leftover fabrics from the garment factory who overestimated their needs. The factory will usually stock up these fabrics for a few season and afterward it will end up at the landfill. We then recreate them into clothes before they are discarded as waste. Since these material are deadstock those fabric usually have limited amount which makes it more unique since once stock is used up then that batch of clothes cannot be reproduced.
Fast fashion industries have tendencies to over produce their products due to factories having minimal quantity order(MOQ). Our partner factory excluded this MOQ for us which mean we only produce in small batch orders to sell to avoid unnecessary waste. Our factory donate part of our left over fabric to a local care house in Macau those fabric will be use for cleaning.
